Building Power When Uninterrupted
Because interruptions typically require good (controlled) behavior on your part, they require self discipline and emotional control. Thus, when you have 20 interruptions, you lose a lot of self regulation units. In the middle of the night, those interruptions are rare and you are not only likely to get your critical work done but you will have MORE self regulation units after you wake up in the morning to deal with the problems that arise.
Schedule what matters in your life and work EARLY in YOUR day and early in the day of the rest of the world.
People start having problems they want your help with at about 8 AM. The number of problems grows throughout the day until perhaps they go home from work at say 5 PM.
If you schedule your uninterrupted time for the middle of the night or early in the morning you are going to get the most accomplished.
What is power? The ability to use your thoughts and behaviors to manifest your desired outcomes and intentions.
People lose self control as the day wears on.
People lose self control after they have just finished a task requiring a great deal of self control.
It is very difficult to maintain self control hour after hour.
As the day goes on more people run out self regulation units. That means they become more likely to lose their mind, behave like an idiot, want to eat like a pig or do other stuff that when you observe it, you become more likely to emulate.
